This obviously suggests that Ethan Hawke and Jule Delpy enjoy some kind of temporary serenity in Before Midnight. Richard Linklater‘s film is far from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff?, but much of the time the marital waters are at the very least choppy. This doesn’t look like Greece (which is where the film takes place) as much as the rocky cliffs adjacent to the Hotel du Cap, which I’ve visited many times during the Cannes Film Festival. 13 years ago I spotted Hawke strolling around the grounds with a young kid, back when he was married to Uma Thurman.
